Mexican Wedding Cookies from Chocolate, Chocolate and More


These Mexican Wedding Cookies are my hubby's absolute favorite Christmas Cookie. All year long he looks forward to the holidays when I get my baking turned into high gear. I make candy, and bark, and cookies and cakes, bread...I cover everything I find in chocolate...most of it is given away to his coworkers and friends. The ladies at the bank, and our accountant. The police and the fire department get some goodies too as well as the schools.

Skillet Lasagna from Pink Parsley


The beauty of this dish is that it really does taste like lasagna, but it comes together in right around half an hour and is completely cooked one skillet.  Joey even ventured to say that he likes it better than traditional lasagna.

30 Minute Creamy Tomato and Chicken Penne from How Sweet it Is


I’m almost embarrassed to share because it’s definitely one of those throw-together-what’s-in-your-fridge meals. But in the spirit of the holiday rush and let’s be honest – the season of cookies for dinner – I decided that any quick and easy meal deserves a little spotlight. Especially when it can produce leftovers and leave more time for cookie baking. Because that’s what I’m really all about. Cookie baking. Mmmm.

Chocolate Dipped Macaroons from The Kitchn


So here's a delicious recipe for chocolate-dipped coconut macaroons, just in time for the gift-giving season. I researched countless ways to make these, some with flour and others with sweetened condensed milk. I'm sure all of them are well and good, but I find a certain delight in this version's simplicity. Because sometimes it's the simplest things in life that make us the happiest. I sure know that a little tin of these homemade macaroons would send me over the moon.

Wow! Dark Chocolate and Salted Caramel Topped Shortbread from Doughmesstic

There are few things more rewarding than being able to successfully prepare a chewy, buttery caramel.  It’s a scary process for many, but, well, I don’t get scared too easily.
Let’s determine why NOT to be scared.
Butter. Sugar. A little Cream. What have you got wrapped up in it? 15 minutes and $2?
I have $2.  I also have 15 minutes.
If it fails, it fails.  I’ve spent $2 on less inspiring ventures.  I bet you have, too.

Amazingly Delicious...Panko Crusted Shrimp Lollipops with Ginger Soy Caramel Dip from White on Rice Couple


This dish is so versatile, you can use it with just about anything. We also made this panko dish with chickenand squash, for a vegetarian option. Japanese Panko bread crumbs gives fried foods and awesome, crispy, crumbly texture. There’s always at least a bag of panko in our pantry as back up because when we need a last minute dish, anything with panko is always a hit! Give panko a try, you’ll love it! The marinade for the soon-to-be-fried-goodies is optional. If you are serving them with the Ginger Soy Caramel Sauce, we recommend not to marinate the shrimp or squash, so that there is more contrasting flavors between the shrimp and the sauce.

Oh My! Breaded Salmon Corn Cakes from White on Rice Couple


Sitting in our fridge was some tantalizing BBQ’d salmon and corn that were left over from a class we taught Saturday. Two days out, we knew that the salmon need to be eaten now, or be delegated “dog’s meal.” So what culinary idea popped into our heads so utilize this last bit of ocean wonder? Salmon cakes! Basically we created a salmon version of crab cakes to which we added the leftover corn for a bit of refreshing pop, some shallots, fresh parsley, fresh bread crumbs from the leftover stale bread. The fridge and kitchen are now cleaned up and we’ve created something tasty to send down the gullet.

Fresh Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Sugar Chips from Chew Out Loud


What is more refreshing than a bounty of fresh, ripe fruit?  Summer season brings out the best in berries and fruits that we all love to enjoy both at home and outdoors.  I’ve been pairing fruit with everything under the sun, but one of our all time favorite ways to eat fruit is in a refreshingly sweet fruit salsa.  It is amazing how many various fruits (nutrients and fiber!) my kids will devour in one sitting when I serve up a cold fruit salsa.  Take it up a notch by pairing said fruit salsa with homemade cinnamon sugar chips.  So easy, crazy good, and the chips stay crispy forever!

Deliciously Good Broccomole: Broccoli Guacamole from Domestic Fits

It’s broccoli guacamole. You’re skeptical, I can tell. But this is really great, and with a creaminess that was slightly shocking, I will be making this again.
And, if you set a serving size at an ounce, as Livestrong is telling me to do, it’s only 22 calories a serving. And only about 250 calories if I eat the entire bowl, which I am prone to doing.
I love guacamole. I profess honest culinary devotion to avocados and guacamole. It is chocked full of healthy fats, vitamins, and protein. A great food that can not be improve upon. This recipe isn’t about improving guacamole. It’s a new food, a lower calorie creamy green dip that is about 1/3 thecalories of that guacamole I love. But with twice the protein and less fat.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Mini Cheesecakes from Mom On Timeout


If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time you might have discovered that I have a thing for Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. A big thing. I named my son after them. You get it now right? So another one of my addictions is cheesecake. Combine the two and you have Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Mini Cheesecakes. I love making them in a muffin tin because it aids in portion control (kind of) and they look so cute! I have served these many times at various parties – especially for Reece’s birthday parties! You can imagine I go a little Reese’s crazy for Reece.

Blueberry Pancake Whoopie Pies with Ricotta Cheese Frosting from Coupon Clipping Cook



I just bought a Whoopie Pie cooking pan (with a coupon I might add) and was trying to think of a fun and different recipe to make with it.
Then I had this idea based on the food channel show, “The Best Thing I Ever Ate”.  I remember one episode where one of the food stars talked about a blueberry pancake with ricotta cheese in it.  I always remembered how delicious it looked topped with real maple syrup.
So, with that inspiration I came up with this recipe.  These Whoopie Pies are made with a buttermilk pancake batter recipe.  I just added blueberries to the batter.  Then filled the Whoopie Pie with one of my favorite frostings made with ricotta cheese which gives the frosting, or filling, such a nice texture.

Sweet Spicy and Smoky Pecans from Patty's Food


I’m in love with a bowl of the most beautiful spicy sweet and smoky flavored pecans or rather I’m in love with the memory of a bowl of the most beautiful spicy sweet and smoky flavored pecans.  Did I also mention that I’m in love with ground red New Mexican chipotle peppers and Spanish smoked paprika?  No, but I will tell you that I do like the deep smoky flavor they add to dishes – like potatoes, chicken, fish, salsas, soups and sauces.  So when I reached in my spice rack to pull out a jar of something spicy to add to a bag of pecans about to be roasted- I thought right away of adding a smoky flavor.

Deliciously Simple Bacon & Guacamole Sammies from Nom Nom Paleo


It’s ridiculously easy to cook bacon in the microwave oven. (Clean-up is simple, too.) Just wrap a few slices between some sheets of paper towel, stick it all on a microwave-safe plate, and nuke away. I set my microwave at 70% power and zapped the bacon for about two-and-a-half minutes. If you find that your bacon’s not yet crisp, just nuke it a bit longer. 

The filling for these “sandwiches”? Chunky homemade guacamole. If you’re pressed for time, simply mash up the flesh of half an avocado, and cut up the other half into half-inch cubes. Then mix both halves together in a bowl to get a nice blend of chunky ‘n creamy. Flavor it with a squirt or two of lime juice and a generous pinch of Kosher salt.

Oatmeal Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Candy Bars from New Nostalgia


Hmm, what to call this recipe??  I kinda messed up a chewy granola bar recipe and ended up with absolutely awesome oatmeal, chocolate, peanut butter heaven!!  How is that for a name??

I've been on the lookout for a gooey, chewy granola bar recipe.  I checked out some of my favorite sites, and I should have known Heavenly Homemaker's has been on the same hunt.  She, too, wanted one with no corn syrup, and of course, she came up with one.  It is one I really want to try again so I can do it right and experience her true recipe, but oh my, am I glad I messed it up because the concoction it made was DELISH!

Gratin Dauphinois...A French Version of Scalloped Potatoes from One Perfect Bite


I love to serve these potatoes when I need something special to accompany a main course for which there is no gravy. Gratin Dauphinois is a Frenchified version of scalloped potatoes, and while the dish sounds elegant, its history can be traced to French peasant kitchens. This gratin is truly easy to make and the version I've finally claimed as my own was developed by Jacques Pepin for the Gourmet Cookbook

Cheesy Corn Cakes with Spicy Avocado Salsa from Simply Delicious


Sometimes, words just aren’t enough to convey exactly how much I really love a specific dish. This is a prime example of that. Therefore, I’ll only tell you that these little corn cakes served with spicy Avocado salsa is pretty much one of the most delicious things I’ve tasted in a really long time. The almost sweet corn cakes with their crispy edges is perfectly complimented with the creamy, zesty and spicy salsa. But what I love most about these corn cakes is that they work incredibly well as breakfast topped with bacon and poached eggs and if you make them into little mini cakes, topped with the salsa they make really great little canapes with drinks.

Henri’s French Onion Soup from Curvy Carrot


I don’t know who Henri is, but I would like to kiss this man.  Since going vegetarian (ahem, pescetarian), I realized that enjoying the things that I used to like, i.e. French onion soup, usually contains things like beef or chicken stock.  I was totally disappointed and was hoping to find another substitute for a soup base.  I thought about experimenting with vegetable stock, but, to be honest, the dark, rustic taste of French onion would  (I thought) be severely compromised by the addition of a vegetable base.

Amazing Texas Pecan Roca from The Novice Chef


So when I happened to walk into Winn Dixie last week and saw a big display saying “Texas Pecans”, I bought the last two bags. After eating half of the first bag, I used the rest to make Texas Pecan Roca. It’s like Almond Roca…but Texan. And with pecans, because they are better. :-D
Since I have mental issues, I wanted them to be individual and better than traditional Almond Roca bark. Most homemade Almond Roca is made in a giant sheet and then broken into bark. Which is great for Almond Roca, but this was Texas Pecan Roca…and it deserved a little more attention.

Soft and Thick Sugar Lofthouse Copycat Cookies from Homemade by Holman


These sugar cookies are similar to the Lofthouse sugar cookies you get at the grocery store.  They start out with a box of cake mix - which isnt usually on my grocery list but I happened to have a box in the pantry from a while back so I figured I would try them.  The recipe said to make sure you use the kind with pudding in the mix as that helps with the softness.  They turned out really, really good.  I loved the texture of these - they are so soft - and they stay that way for several days too.

Lightened-Up Four Cheese Mac and Cheese from How Sweet it Is



Mac and cheese is pure comfort food to me. Mother Lovett made some delicious, creamy macaroni and cheese, and I was always trying to perfect it. She always told me my version was ’too dry.’ Of course it was, because I never used 6lbs of Velveeta.
 One thing I have none of when it comes to mac and cheese? Self control. So I made a lighter version of the heavy duty stuff. And this time, I portioned it into tiny ramekins in hopes of stopping after eating one. It worked. Sorta.

Deliciously Easy 7 Ingredient Cheesy Taco Pasta from Lauren's Latest


Need a quick 15 minute dinner that everyone will love? Well, I’ve got your back. This recipe was inspired by those boxes of Hamburger Helper I saw at the store the other day. I see why they appeal to so many families. It’s fast, easy and you don’t really have to think too much about it. Well, I took the ease of that meal, took out all the preservatives {and msg….eww} and made it healthier! To be honest, just using unprocessed, fresh ingredients makes it ten times better for your health. Plus, whenever I taste those kinds of foods, my tastebuds are hyper sensitive to the chemicals or something because they taste awful to me! Is that just me, or do you guys taste that too?

Chicken Verde Taquitos from The Secret Life of a Chef's Wife

My goal: to con­vince you that mak­ing these tooth­some lit­tle tacos is no more dif­fi­cult than going to the store, buy­ing a box of frozen, and pre-heating the oven.  If I could just make you believe that all you need to do is make the chicken fill­ing in advance, leav­ing the rolling and fry­ing for right before din­ner time, then maybe, just maybe, you’d fry up about 40 of these babies and feed them to your fam­ily. Or an army. Or maybe feed­ing your fam­ily is like feed­ing an army. Or maybe you just appre­ci­ate left­overs. (Believe me, even re-heated in the microwave these beat the heck out of fast-food fare.)

Better Than Takeout Orange Chicken from The Noshery


I love orange chicken and I almost always order # 14 Orange Chicken when we order Chinese take out and I wondered to myself if I could make it better at home.  This recipe most definitely delivered!   Ha ha Chinese food…delivered….get it?  Am I a dork?
The sauce is sweet, tangy, there is no lack in orange flavor and the red pepper flakes give it just a touch of heat.  I thought I would dredge the chicken in corn starch instead of flour to keep it light and also in panko breadcrumbs to give it a little crunch.  It was the right call, the chicken came out lightly breaded and still held up a bit of a crunch when tossed in the sauce.  Delicious!

A Lobster Roll to Call Your Own from My Man's Belly


Wow!!! That is all I can say...this recipe for lobster rolls from My Man's Belly  has made me literally speechless.  If you haven't had one of these fabulous sandwiches before, I highly recommend you give it a try.  A lot of folks think that lobster is expensive, which is it.  These days you can get lobster tails from Costco and most grocery stores for about $5-8 a piece depending on the size.  One tail is about all you need per sandwich. Heck....you can spend that going and having a not so good burger at a fast food restaurant, right?
